Mary Gordon passed away on March 15, 2014 with her loving husband by her side. She was born Mary Florence Hunter on November 28, 1930 to George and Mary (Seferos) Hunter of Seattle, Washington and raised in Magnolia. She went to Lawton Elementary School and graduated from Queen Anne High School.

When she was two years old, Mary and her mother flew to Nome, Alaska so their little family could be together while her Father was working on the movie, "The Bounty". Mary was nicknamed 'the Little Darling of Nome" by Eskimos and cast and crew of the film alike.

Mary loved playing with her many, many Greek cousins and growing up in Magnolia was like a small town with neighborhood friends. She shared memories of playing baseball, swinging in the hammock in the yard and her Mom packing picnic lunches for her, her sister and neighborhood kids and walking them to the beach.

While raising her young family, Mary traveled to many places. In later years she and Meryl loved to go RV'ing. They traveled the United States after retiring from Civil Service. They made Coupeville their home and were Snow Birds for many years. They were full time RVer's for three years and really enjoyed all the places they visited during that time. Mary enjoyed going to Alaska and fishing with her son Mike and had a wonderful 80th birthday party with all her children and spouses. Mary loved to go to family barbecues and reunions and being with her children and grandchildren.

She loved baseball and football and watched the Mariners and Seahawks religiously. Even though she'd get discouraged with the Mariners, she was a true fan.
Mary and her sister Pat (Patricia) went on many trips to Reno together and were always called the Hunter sisters while traveling. She had a wonderful since of humor, loved to laugh and be with her family. She liked the simple things in life and would always make sure everyone was rested and not stressed about things and to relax and just enjoy life.

Unfortunately her health deteriorated after a car accident over a year ago, but her spirit always remained strong. She was an amazing, tough and beautiful woman.

She is survived by her husband of nearly 40 years, Meryl Gordon at their home in Coupeville. Her three children, Janet (Manny) Rojas of Coupeville, Michael (Shelly) Dunn of Ketchikan, AK, (Cheri) Cheryl (Cory) Asleson of Smithfield, UT and her three grandchildren, Celena Rojas, Joseph Rojas and Lacey Dunn and Meryl's three children and two grandchildren, Terri (Mike) Thomas, Chris and Brian Thomas, Kraig Gordon and Lisa (Terry) Beitler. She is also survived by her sister Patricia Durham and her Niece, Linda Package and nephew Michael Durham.

A Funeral Mass service will be celebrated on Thursday, March 27th at 11am at St. Mary Catholic Church in Coupeville with Rev. Paul Pluth, J.C.L. as Celebrant. Friends and family are encouraged to share memories and condolences utilizing the Book of Memories hosted by Wallin Funeral Home at www.wallinfuneralhome.com.
